The Coronavirus is officially in the United States and people are taking precautions to help stop the spread. Schools are closing, employees are being asked to work from home and citizens are encouraged to practice social distancing as a way to slow the spread of virus.
One group of people who are directly affected by the social distancing and move to online engagement are college kids. Universities all across the nation are implementing online classes to practice social distancing in an attempt to slow down the spread of the virus. While some schools have completely shut down campus, students living on campus are forced to return home or find another place to live.
As the Coronavirus continues to spread throughout the United States and everyone implements precautions to stay healthy, many companies are stepping up to help those who are affected.U-Haul is one of the companies.
U-Haul recently announced that they are offering 30 days of free self-storage to help college students who are affected or displaced from universities by the Coronavirus.
“We don’t know how every student is affected. But we know they are affected,” said John “JT” Taylor, president at U-Haul. “More and more universities are giving instructions to leave campus and go home. Students and their parents are in need of moving and storage solutions. We have the expertise and network to help, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”
All college students need is a college ID and to be a new customer to be eligible for free 30-day self-storage.
The company does urge that this is a limited-time offer subject to availability, so if you need storage, you want to act fast.
